The Military Gendarmerie (Polish: ?andarmeria Wojskowa, abbreviated ?W) is a military provost created in 1990 in Poland as an independent part of the Polish Armed Forces.


Polish military police traces its history to the communist era Military Internal Service (Polish: Wojskowa S?u?ba Wewn?trzna), World War II-era Service for Protection of the Uprising (Polish: Wojskowa S?u?ba Ochrony Powstania), interwar-era military police in the Second Polish Republic, formations of the January and November Uprising, Duchy of Warsaw and finally, some officials of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, first created in early 17th century.
